Brigham Young University Partners With Evolution Labs to Provide Student Athletes With Next Generation Digital Tools to Help Them Succeed
MORRISTOWN, NJ – Evolution Labs has announced that Brigham Young University has chosen the company’s SA360 platform as its primary web and mobile-based tool to help improve student-athlete success. SA360 provides student-athletes with engaging information as well as tools and resources designed to help them succeed academically, athletically and personally. The program also provides athletic advisors and coaches with a platform that can help them be more responsive and supportive throughout the sports season and academic year.
SA360 covers important success topics, such as health and wellness, study skills, risk behavior, NCAA compliance and career exploration. It utilizes pulse surveys, social media, self-tests and heuristics, digital video and other web and mobile-based tools that keep students returning for fresh content. The university plans to debut the program to all of its athletes in fall 2015.
“We are excited to implement SA360 for our student-athletes,” says Janie Rasmussen, BYU associate Athletics director and SWA. “SA360 provides an impressive toolset to complement our extensive student-athlete support services. We look forward to offering this highly engaging program to all of our student-athletes.”
“As a top-tier national private institution, Brigham Young University understands the importance of student-athlete success both on and off field,” said Peter Kraft, Co-founder at Evolution Labs. “We believe SA360 offers the perfect fit for an institution which recognizes that today’s student-athletes consume media very differently than their predecessors. SA360 was designed foremost to engage students in content that we know increases their chances of success by leveraging the formats they find most compelling.”
